Who's a SPECTACULAR Stacker?
In this challenge, teams competed against each other.
In order to reach high places, electricians often utilize scaffolding. Teams were required to set up a single scaffolding unit, load it with the material(s) provided and maneuver it around the picnic table across the field. They had to return the unit to the start, disassemble the scaffolding unit and stack the materials neatly. Once teams completed this task, they had finished their challenges for the 2020 Spectacular Sprint.
Who's Moving Forward?
Teams completed an obstacle course on Cub Cadet zero turn lawn mowers. Team member #1 first completed the course with a steering wheeled version. Once completed, team member #2 completed the same course with a lever version mower. Team members then switched units and had to complete the course again. Once both members had completed the obstacle course twice successfully, the time was stopped.

Armed with a list of clues, teams meandered through the store to locate the items needed to fulfill the order. Writing down the name of the item on the order form as well as the location it was found, teams were racing to see who could complete their shopping list the fastest.

Who's Got an Eye for Design?
Here teams worked together as a personal shopper to create an ensemble for their customer to the satisfaction of the onsite staff. The customer wore a size Small/Medium top and a 28/29 pant. With fall being one of the favorite seasons for style, teams were directed to make sure they consider the weather and find accessories to match their completed outfit.
Inspired or Inspect?
Only one member was able to complete this task. Located within the main office, teams needed to locate the inspiring founders of the Town and Country Museum. Memorizing the names of each founder, teams were required to recite all ten to a volunteer located by the CN Train Station. If they were unable to recite all ten at once, teams were required to return to the main office and try again.
Only one team member was able to complete this task. Back in the day, a velocipede was utilized by a railway inspector to determine maintenance requirements of the track. Team members were required to maneuver the hand powered unit back and forth on the track collecting and delivering 5 beanbags from the start to the container at the ramp.
Who's Shooting for SPECTACULAR?
Only one team member was able to complete this task. Using a provided pellet gun, teams were required to free arm shoot five times at a target set up in front of them. With a possible score of 50 points, times were reduced by the amount of points scored on the target. The higher the points, the less time awarded to the task. Once the team completed the five shots and points were tallied, teams received their next clue.
***Safety precautions and training were completed by all participants prior to participating in this task.
Teams were directed to travel by motor vehicle to their next location. Before they left, they were required to snap a selfie of their team with their Travelling Gnome and post it to the Spectacular Sprint event page on Facebook.
